Gillian Nolan - I passed my test!

The best driving school in Leinster! My instructor Joe, he is a brilliant teacher with excellent tips & advice. He's also a bit of craic! I became much more confident and noticeably a better driver within my first 2-3 lessons. The pricing is very reasonable and Joe works with you to best fit your schedule. I wouldn't recommend any other motor school, these guys are by far the best!

It is an depressing truth that Ireland is one of the worst nations in Europe for road deaths and accidents. The Road Safety Authority were required to do something so they created a brand new driver training syllabus that all new drivers have to finish. The Essential Driver Training or EDT.

The Essential Driver Training Syllabus consists of 12 obligatory structured driving lessons that have to be provided by a RSA approved driving instructor to all new drivers.

These 12 lessons were created with the objective of filling in the crucial driving skill gaps that new drivers had that have been ultimately causing the high degree of road accidents each year.

Getting prepared for the Test in Ballylinan

Pretest Driving Lessons Ballylinan Pretest Driving Lessons Ballylinan

Initially you must master the rules of the road, the road signs and skills needed to control a car safely. And then there is understanding how to best the driving test. The driving test is your opportunity to demonstrate that you are safe enough to drive on your own. And obviously, as with any kind of test, if you are familiar with the conditions and what to anticipate you can pass effortlessly.

If your driving test is arranged there is a lot of doubts and concerns to cope with. They frequently get the best of even the most seasoned driver. So it makes perfect sense that we have to shine a light in the dark, take away the unknowns and the fear. And that's precisely what our pretest driving lessons will do.

A lot of instructors will keep giving you lessons until they ‘think’ you are ready. Often they will bring you to perform the test not really knowing if you will pass or not. And they do this because they do not really have an understanding of the driving test, how you will be graded or what aspects of your driving likely to lead a fail. Thankfully this is not how we operate. Our team of driving instructors have been coached by ex-testers so they fully understand the driving tester and what they are looking for from you on driving test day.

We don’t like abandoning things to chance. Our pretest training fully reproduce the 4 different stages of the driving test and fully prepares you for the way the driving tester will talk to you and how they mark the test sheet.

When we reveal this knowledge and understanding with our pupils it is like providing them with each of the solutions to an exam before they even know the questions. Which is why a great number of our students pass the driving test on their first attempt. That means fewer driving lessons and less expense to our students.

Rachael Buggle - I passed my test!

I failed my test several times and had lost faith in my ability to actually pass the test. A friend suggested that I contact the School of Motoring for a new instructor. They suggested who specialized in aiding those who had not been successful. After a few lessons I was ready to sit my test again and passed it. I highly recommend this school and this instructor. I don't think I would have passed my test without their help.
